While it is common to go to the store to buy a Sunday newspaper, it is not so common to win $10,000 in the process; however, that's exactly what happened to Pamela Arvie of Baton Rouge when she played Hit $100, a $2 scratch-off from the Louisiana Lottery.
"I stopped to get the Sunday paper and something told me to buy a ticket," explained Arvie, age 25. "It was the first scratch-off I've ever bought and it was a winner!"
Arvie purchased her winning scratch-off from Circle K #3772 on Evangeline Street in Baton Rouge.
Hit $100 offers players the chance to win up to 10 times on each ticket. The game has two remaining top prizes of $10,000 as of Sept. 29.
